Friendship or familiarity?


In the course of the weekend, i mused deeply over these questions and i was overwhelmed by zillion thoughts that center around the basic understanding of these two ‘F’.

Some of us that are used to being in the midst of many friends and colleagues in the past might not have any issue that boils down to resentment and reluctance in understanding what is expected and necessary to have open our hands in adding to our company or legion of friends.

On the contrary,it is always a hard nut to crack for some of us that are known to be a lone rangers because the efforts needed to open our arms and hands in response to allowing more droves of friends into our company seems not to be available but our complaints of being lonely has its root and routes in our inability to build bridges that will connect us to others.

While many of us that have many friends enjoys every bit of friendship with all round capacity to accommodate more friends irrespective of differences,those of us that are seen to be an island in the seas of heads find it difficult to cope with our sudden exposure to the public,in the course of the exposure,many of us misbehave and are found to lack the basic understanding of what is expected in driving the traffic of new friends and what is needed in maintaining,entertaining and keeping the flow of new friends into our lifes.

Such people are always seen to have character,attitudinal and behavioural lapses,deficiency and dysfunction that is unacceptable in the public domain and are viewed to be akin to a kind of infection that triggers leprosy.

Your inability to build bridges and fences that will accommodate others into your life without any reluctance and resentment makes you a leper.

No doubt about it,what makes a good friendship thrives without ant clog is the absence of pride,ego,jealousy,disrespect and disregard with self-respect and mutual understanding being at the core of the relationship.

Friendships are expected to be deep while familiarity has to dwell on the surface.

Selflessness and sacrificial efforts makes the wheel of friendship rosy but ego,pride,disrespect and disregards water down the quality of any form of relationship that centers around friendship which makes friendship loose its value and turn it into mere familiarity that has nothing to offer except selfishness and all round deceit.


The question is:

How can the essence of good friendship be exhibited?

The essence of good friendship becomes profound and exhibited when the parties involved adhere to the golden rule that says:

“Do unto others as you want others to do to you”

Since we lack the basic understanding of what friendship entails,some of us misconstrue mere familiarity as friendship.

It is high time we subject the friendship we are into to the aforementioned so that by the time we finish deciphering,it will dawn on us that the people we call friends are not wort a while but a mere familiarity.

Check the company you keep as friends but you will end up tagging and labeling them as familiars.

Appraise the company of friends you keep and check if it worth a while being in their midst.



Faithful is He….

In your state of  weakness,do not think that God is weak and wicked,

In your state of despair,do not think that you are displaced,



In your hopelessness,do not think that God is playing with your destiny.

God is not playing with your destiny,

God is preserving your destiny,

God is not parting with you at this moment,

God is protecting your future with a promise of a better tomorrow.

You might have been pummeled by the realities of life,

You might have been pained with the outcome of your endeavors,

Your hope might have been dashed by people around you,

The political and economy realities of the present days might be frustrating,

Weep not Child!

God has decided to step into the affair of your life,

God is set to change your story,

Patience is what is needed at this moment,

God’s delay is never God’s denial.

You need to hold on to him,

He has prepared a better place for you to be glorified,

Patience and faith are all that is needed for you to scale through,

When there is life,there is hope of a better day.

God has promised,

He will never leave you not forsake you.

Cast all your anxieties on God,

For He cares for you,


The load might be heavy but i Know that the weight will give you strength.

It is well with your soul.

God is too faithful to fail you.

Look unto Him,

The author and finisher of your faith
